rsync-mirror is used to backup local directories to another location on the local machine or to a remote machine. As the name suggests, it uses rsync for data transfer so it should be pretty efficient. It does not support any nifty backup features like incremental backups; all it does is mirror a directory to another location. To ease the task of creating backups, rsync-mirror takes care of managing the destination site of the backup. In case the target path needs to be mounted, rsync-mirror does so before backup and unmounts it afterwards.
Release Notes: This first public release is a major rewrite and restructuring of the original script.
